I am very confused about two or more port network interface cards (NICs).

Does having 2 port on a NIC allow you to have 2 network interfaces? If I go to ifconfig will it list each port as a separate device with its own IP and MAC?

If it doesn't work like that, please send me in the right direction.


Yes it does, It's basically the same as having two one port NICs, only physically more compact.
